Regarded as Russia’s most-famous calling card, the Great Moscow Circus is coming to South Africa at a cost of R80 million, with a two-hour programme of sensational, affordable, family entertainment, capturing all the thrills and fun of the circus of yesteryear with all the skill and daring of today’s circus heroes.
Featuring more than 65 circus super stars, including the best from Russia and the cream of the international circus world, the Great Moscow Circus brings with it more than 100 tonnes of equipment.
It will perform every possible circus favourite – the funniest clowns, the most-daring acrobats, death-defying daredevils, aerial artists, balancers, showgirls and much more – all supported by a live circus band and under the fabulous 1,700 all-chair seating, air-conditioned mighty Great Moscow Circus Big Top tent.
Back by popular demand is ringmaster, Stanislav “Stas” Knyazkov, fresh from a US season with Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey, where he was an audience favourite. Stas will have a huge supporting cast in 18 thrilling acts.
